Christine and the Queens is taking the world by storm. Almost four years after the release of her first album Chaleur Humaine, which sold 1.3 million copies worldwide, the French singer from Nantes has announced four dates (Los Angeles, New York, London and Paris) for the end of the year. She’ll be in Los Angeles on Saturday, October 27 at The Wiltern, and in New York on Wednesday, October 31 at Brooklyn Steel.
The concert poster for Christine and the Queens has had some words crossed out, leaving only the word “Chris.” The feminist and LGBTQ-ally reveals in a more androgynous look than ever on the poster, with short brown hair, a relaxed tank top, a boxy button-down, and a photo angle that highlights her strong jawline. If the rumors are true, her second album should be out this year. On her posters, a sentence, in English, presents perhaps a mystery, perhaps a clue, for her upcoming album: “Girlfriend, don’t feel like a girlfriend / but lover, damn, I’d be your lover.” We’re hooked.
Héloïse Letissier, the singer’s real name, has been adopted by the British and American music scenes following her French success, and had an American-high when Time Magazine placed her on the cover of its October 3, 2016 edition.
